AVEVA Group plc (LSE: AVV), one of the world's leading providers of engineering design and information management solutions to the plant, power and marine industries, announced that Thai-based The Bangkok Dock Company (1957) Limited, and Indian-based SKA Marine Services Pvt Ltd. have concluded contracts for the use of AVEVA Marine solutions within their respective yards.
Established in 1865, The Bangkok Dock Company has a rich maritime history and today is among the country’s leading shipbuilding and ship repair enterprises. The company is considered an important asset for the Royal Thai Navy.
SKA Marine Services is based in Chennai, India, and offers a complete spectrum of services to ship builders and ship owners including basic ship design, equipment sourcing, preparation and approval of class, statutory and production drawings.
Peter Finch, President, AVEVA Asia Pacific, said: “AVEVA has long been used by top yards around the world. With countries such as India, Vietnam and Thailand beginning their shipbuilding programs, AVEVA is confident that we can support these yards to become more efficient and hence more able to compete with the major players.”
Peter continued: “We are confident that shipbuilding will remain a viable industry within these countries as it has always been interlinked with shipping, which is closely connected to a country’s international trade. Today we see India’s and Thailand’s exports on the rebound as the global economy improves and industrial production picks up. This is a positive trend for both the countries’ shipping industries, and their shipbuilding and repair activity. Regional naval projects are also playing an integral role in driving the shipbuilding industry. This is especially true in India, which has a thriving naval shipbuilding programme, and where AVEVA solutions are currently used to design all ships in the Indian Navy.”
